### How many rational numbers can be put between 2 and7?

There are an infinite number of rational numbers between any two rational numbers. And 2 and 7 are rational numbers. Here's an example. Take 2 and 7 and find the number halfway between them: (2 + 7)/2 = 9/2, which is rational. Then you can take 9/2 and 2 and find a rational number halfway: 2 + 9/2 = 13/2, then divide by 2 = 13/4. No matter how close the rational numbers become, you can add them together and divide by 2, and the new number will be rational, and be in between the other 2.
